Christmas cards of a different color.

The traditional Christmas colors did not play a big part in these cards.  Last year I had purchased some chipboard pieces on sale.  I loved the light colors and the pink that was included.  I decided to get busy making some cards using these pieces up.  Instead of letting them sit in drawer for another year.  I still have plenty of them left to use up but here is what I got done so far.  The chipboard pieces I used for the cards come from K&Company sweet noel chipbox, Brenda Walton adhesive chipboard Peppermint Twist, & Holiday Times handmade stickers from Wal-Mart.   The paper I used was from Jo anns 12x12 Peppermint Forest & DCWV Holiday Collection "The Christmas Stack" 180 sheets.  These were all from last year.  To me it doesn't matter how old or long ago I got the paper if it looks good and that is mood I am in I go for it.  Card making for me is to relieve stress so I don't worry about keeping up to date on all the new products.  I just use what I have on hand.  I did stitching on all the cards.  I had my sewing machine out and set up so I figure might as well use it while I had it out.  I love stitching on cards.  I think it adds that special touch.  Hope you like the cards.  Comments are always welcomed.

  1. These are so lovely. I really like nontraditional
    Christmas card colors. You're right about the paper: I have so many "old" ones that I still love and will use. No one will know the difference,right?
